I see no difference other than the fact that you pasted the text as well as the link.
Other than the fact that I have listed the degrees by name and provided the link to back them up.

Instead of a broken link to nowhere, SuperFAG?

Still waiting, SuperFAG.

Put up.

Yes and PMs resign,
Prime ministers are not elected in the UK.

I don't care if they take baths or not- I am sure they are infrequent- but whether or not PM resign or die in office: who cares.

When they are replaced, they are replaced, each and every one of them, by appointment.

And I have as much say on who will be the next PM as you.

Actually, I was the one who showed you, bigot, I show you how it works and so far, bigot, you have not been able to refute a SINGLE thing I have said.

Now bigot: the prime minister in UK is APPOINTED.

By the monarch.

Just as I have stated many dozen times.

NO matter how hard you stomp your bigoted feet.

And the prime minister is not always elected by his party.

As I have already proved.

Wipe your chin, Skanque.

Sweden: Cost of royal wedding triggers monarchy debate

By Malin Rising, Associated Press Writer

STOCKHOLM — It will be a royal moment of glory set against the bleak backdrop of Europe's financial crisis.

The June 19 wedding in Stockholm Cathedral between Crown Princess Victoria and her personal trainer Daniel Westling has triggered debate about why an otherwise egalitarian country like Sweden retains such an archaic — and expensive — institution.

Like in neighboring monarchies Norway and Denmark, the Swedish royals' responsibilities are purely ceremonial, but they still enjoy privileged lives compared to ordinary people, a disparity that has become increasingly evident during preparations for the wedding.

Many here are questioning the 20 million kronor ($2.5 million) price tag of the wedding — half of which will be borne by taxpayers — at a time when ordinary citizens are being asked to endure a new age of austerity.

Again you ignore democracy, the PM is approved by the queen ONLY after being elected as an MP by the public and elected as a party leader by the publicly elected members of his party.
